Tuesday January 25, 2011
We are thrilled to announce that we have been acquired by Google.
Since 2005, we've explored fun and entertaining ways for people to talk with each other. Through the web, smartphones, and even land lines, our products brought communities together through the power of voice. And as Google has some of the best voice products in the world, we believe combining forces with the Google Voice team will let us innovate in new and unexplored areas.
We have no specific product plans to announce at this time, but we'll have more to say about our roadmap as we integrate with Google, so stay tuned. We couldn't be more excited about what is yet to come.
